We fell in love with Destin when we came on the BEST vacation ever in 1995! We began an annual vacation tradition that was awesome for our kids as they grew up. We loved it so much here that now we live here full time and rent out our home, plus other homes and condos in the area. The people are friendly and the beach and clear waters just can't be beat!
We owned a Gulf front condo for many years and realized we wanted something bigger so our kids could bring friends when we came on vacation. We purchased this house in the middle of construction, which was great because we could add some of our own touches before it was finished (surround sound, etc.). This area of Crystal Beach has a great, short, almost level beach access, and the home is just a few yards away. We love the area because you have the conveniences of restaurants and stores very close by, yet the neighborhood is quiet and very family-oriented.
We tried to think of just about everything you need so you don't have to load your car to the brim with 'stuff.' Just bring a swimsuit and beach towel, and you are set! We really enjoy entertaining, so we furnished our home with conveniences that make entertaining a breeze. We hope you enjoy everything Skipper's Escape as to offer!
What a great week we've had at Skipper's Escape in Destin! This is a perfect beach house and it has been a great fit for the 14 of us from Texas!! Even though June grass messed up the beautiful water most of the week, we've still had a fun time, and the pool and deck here have been fantastic! We hope to come back soon!
We spent a wonderful week with our son and his wife and four grandkids in this great house located just minutes from the beach and all the shopping you could ever want! The pool house was perfect for our son and everyone else had their own private bedroom. The kitchen has everything you need! Chris and Janet have thought of everything! We had the pool heated which was perfect for us "old" folks. While we were here our son and his fiance got married and had pictures done on the beach at sunset. It was really beautiful! We love the house so much we want to come back next year. Thank you Chris and Janet for the best place we have ever stayed in in Destin!
Skippers Escape is a great house!! My friends and I (four families total) have stayed here for several years. It has a well stocked kitchen and good size dining and gathering area along with a very nice backyard and pool. It is wonderful for entertaining or for just hanging out. it is an excellent place for families to gather. The Kiley's are great hosts. We have stayed at two of their homes. They take good care of their properties. When there is a problem they are very quick to remedy the situation. The house is in a great location. The beach is very close. Many great shopping, dining and tourist attractions are also nearby. The beach does get crowded in mid afternoon, but if you go early or late afternoon into the evening it is very nice. My friends and my family have had great times and memories here. We look forward to our next visit. Thank you to the Kileys for a quality vacation experience.
The house was even nicer than we had imagined. Stocked well and in good working order. We did have some minor repair issues but Janet was there very quickly to address them. Location is only five house from the beach with ocean views from the widows walk. Lots of shopping nearby and Camille's is a two minute walk away for coffee and sangria. The only thing that was bothersome is that the public beach access closest to the house only has a very small area for use; both sides bracketing it are private. So to find a spot you need to move in either direction down the beach a couple hundred yards. This can be tiring when lugging a bunch of beach gear. I realize this is beyond the control of the owner, just wanted to give a heads up. Anyway the house was great and we loved our time there. Thanks to the Kiley family for sharing this piece of paradise with us.
This is our second year with Kiley Beach Resorts. We loved staying at Skipper's Escape this year. The location is perfect. They make sure we are happy. All the bases are covered. I can't wait to stay again next year.
We travel to Destin every other year and have been since 2007. We have stayed in several nice houses but Skipper's Escape has definitely been the best one. It is clean, the kitchen is well equipped, and the location is close to the beach. We have seven adults and two kids in our group and everyone had their own space. The owner is very kind and helpful with any questions before and during your stay. I would highly recommend Skipper's Escape.
We celebrated my younger son's first wedding anniversary and my older son's 30th birthday. The house was perfect, very clean, good size rooms and # of bathrooms were perfect. The cabana was awesome addition for privacy. The house was very close to beach and had beautiful views from tower room and 2nd floor deck. All the amenities were great and we really enjoyed the Pool and wonderful kitchen/living area. We can't wait to come back!! Only negative were a couple of the bedroom TVs were old and had fuzzy pictures, but we weren't there to watch tv anyway....so that did not really bother us.
